NURTURING LIFE

I want you to meet one of the many exceptional guest teachers in the Ecstatic Birth Practitioner Training, Sokhna Heathyre Mabin.

A leading edge visionary of sacred fertility and creativity, Sokhna is a woman who stands for all women, for mothers, for babies, for LIFE.

As a doula of color, and one developing doula programs for her community, Sokhna intimately understands the challenges black women face in the birthing room and what long term solutions look like, solutions that include:

Respect.
Connection.
Community.
Support.
LOVE.

If you are not as WEALTHY as you want to be…

In this moment of global awakening, we are ALL in deep contraction and MONEY is a core part of this contraction.

Scarcity and struggle are center stage in the global narrative around money. More so than ever before.

Despite this my revenue went up in April and has continued to rise in May… amidst this pandemic.

I have been fierce in consciously creating my own narrative.

If you are not as wealthy as you want to be, please consider this your instigating moment!

Love women? Love Birth?

Dear Soulful Spaceholder of Women’s Birthing Mysteries,  

You were called to serve women, to support birth. Deep in your womb you know and honor the power and significance of childbirth as a sacred rite of passage. Thank you.  

I know you pour forth so much love, attention and energy in supporting women in their journey to motherhood.  It’s a deep honor to witness and be a guide to the portal for creation and new life.

But it can, quite honestly, feel DRAINING and DEPLETING to witness the widespread pain and trauma currently prevalent in birth over and over and over again.

In a culture where women are still fighting to reclaim autonomy and safety in our own bodies, where fear dominates our options and guides our decisions, and our religious and cultural inheritance maintain that women should suffer in birth, it is no wonder that women are still so disconnected from the primal power, magic and PLEASURE that birth can be. 

We are overdue for a change. And NOW is that time.✨

Women, we MUST embody the change we want to create:  

Journeying back to our own bodies, reclaiming the power and pleasure within, to lead from a place of JOY rather than fear.

Only then can we ELEVATE the birth experiences of our clients despite all the obstacles they face and stay VIBRANT and ENERGIZED while doing this sacred work!

I have an invitation just for you…

The Fall of Man? I Think Not.

There is something that deeply troubles me about our legacy….

That moment when a baby is born and a mother emerges is magical, sacred.. POWERFUL.. The highest of highs. Right?

On a personal level, for both parents, it is one of the major milestones of life. For the baby, it is literally LIFE itself.

On a global level, this moment ushers in the next generation of humanity.

It is DIVINE- the moment creation is actualized.

The FUTURE is literally being BORN.

A pivotal EXTRAordinary moment on the planet…

and yet our legacy declares that THIS is the moment that we will PUNISH WOMEN FOR THEIR SINS AGAINST MAN.

WHAAAAAaaaaaaaaat?

“P” is for Pleasure and Power and P**?

This guest blog post is by Jenny Braxton, Mama, birth visionary, educator & community leader and ECSTATIC BIRTH PRACTITIONER!

I entered my feminine form through the pelvic bowl of my mother, journeying from her womb out into the world on the day I was born. It was a long and arduous journey, devoid of pleasure.

{Until she held me in her arms, of course. Then let’s hope there was bliss.}

We all start life in a pelvic bowl, in the wombs of our mothers. From there, we are born into the world.

My entrance into the world was imprinted onto my being at a deep level, in what’s known as the limbic brain, that ancient, reptilian part of myself. My imprint was that becoming a mother is difficult and full of pain.
